It's Already March?

I'm so bummed. I didn't even realize it was March 1st yesterday...and we missed celebrating Josefine's 8 mo! Since there was no 29th of February, there was no 8mo-on-the-dot celebration, so I hadn't decided yet if I wanted to celebrate on the 28th or the 1st of March. Welp...guess that decision is made. We'll celebrate today! :) Josefine is 8 mos! I'd call this an extended celebration!

In other Baby News...we're still waiting and praying. I have another appointment on Thursday. I have yet to schedule it, but Doc wanted me to come in on Thursday or next Tuesday, and since we're going to be in MN for a Missions Conf. that week, I won't be able to go on Tuesday. I would have liked to wait a bit longer than a week from the last appt. but, this is what God clearly wants...so, Thursday, it is!

Also...I've been thinking about "Miracle Babies" and it hit me the other day, that we are surrounded by them! With all the millions of things that need to go right (scientifically and medically) for there to be a healthy human being, EVERY single one of us is a real miracle. Some days, I think it's amazing that I've survived these past 28 years, with all that could go wrong. Obviously, God can supercede science and medicine. And knowing that brings so much comfort and peace.

I look at Josefine and I think..."here, we're pleading God for a miracle, and look at the one He has already given us." Not that I'm still NOT pleading for God to protect and give this baby life, but, wow...to sit here and ponder what He HAS given us. I can barely wrap my mind around it, and I'm left overwhelmingly thankful.

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful."
Colossians 3:15

I think about that often, that babies are each a miracle. Still praying for you.

So true, Sarah.

I love this quote from Pastor JH3 ~

"When we focus on ourselves it always leads to despair, but when we focus on God it gives us purpose, direction, and a drive to live."

And, Sarah, *thankful* is a great place to be.

So true! A life developing over a 9 month period... it's amazing! God is so powerful, I am always encouraged to rememeber when things seem bad that HE is in control. I am so thankful for the peace and comfort that we can find in Him.

I just found your blog by clicking through some friends of mine, and reading your posts about your current pregnancy made me feel like I was reading a story about my own life a few months ago.

Unfortunately, after waiting and waiting and waiting, I did miscarry. I ended up having to have a D&C. Since we had waited so long and my body hadn't miscarried on its own and the fetal tissue was clearly decomposing, my doctor was concerned for infection and other complications in the future.

I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you. The waiting time can be so difficult. The best way I could describe it to other people was that it felt like I had been holding my breath for a really, really long time.

I know that God is faithful and has a plan for every single person. I know that his good and perfect will will be played out in your family's life.

Also, it felt good to read about someone who is going through part of what I went through. It's nice to know you're not alone.

Praying for you, Sarah, and crying with you. Thanks for the reminder that our babies are all miracles!
